A Pebbles Inc. Americana Home of The Free Layout

As promised I'm back today to share a layout using Pebble's Americana collection.  I had so much fun with this one!  I decided to create my page's theme around one of the cutouts from the collection that says "One Nation Under God".  I usually am a bit shy when it comes to being vocal about my faith and belief in God, but I thought it was important to document my values for my children and future grandchildren.

For my title I used some of Pebbles glitter foam thickers in combination with an older set of red rub-ons by American Crafts called MiniMarks (ginger font).  I decided to play up the natural feel of this collection with some wood veneer stars, buttons and twine, using them in combination with the die cut shapes and pinwheel from the collection.

For my journaling I printed it on vellum using my printer's specialty paper setting, giving it plenty of time to dry and then used 3M Spray Mount as my adhesive.  This product is awesome at giving even coverage without any visibility, but it's also lethal stuff so make sure to do it inside a big cardboard box and in a spot where you have plenty of ventilation.  ;)

Pebbles really knocked it out of the park with these papers!  I love how they can be both Patriotic as well as just a pretty red, white and blue picnic sort of line with a focus on the florals and ginghams (I have another layout in the works that has nothing to do with the fourth of July that I'm hoping to finish and share later in the summer).

I'll be back on Thursday with a new link up challenge for Lori Whitlock's blog.  Hope to see you then.  ;)
